Mick Foley is uncertain about the future of Twitter after Elon Musk purchased it and is considering exiting the platform. As you may have heard, Twitter accepted Musk’s $44 billion offer to buy the social media platform, a move that has brought unsurprisingly polarized reactions. Musk has called for a series of changes to the platform including relaxing content moderation in the name of free speech, which have led to concerns that hate speech will become more prominent.

Foley posted to his account on Monday:

“I’ll be giving some serious thought to leaving @Twitter for good in the near future.

I do not have a good feeling about where this platform is heading.

    What a snowflake

    Easy there, Mick. No one’s leaving Twitter because of a new owner. He’s considering it. But going no where. And even if he does leave, is this really going to impact anyone’s life here for the worst?

  3. Mike Oxmaul says:

    is there actually any moderation on comments?

    Elon Musk buying Twitter is bad but Bill Gates buying up land to become the largest farmland holder isn’t. I’m more concerned about why Bill Gates is buying up that much land.

    What do you think gates is going to do with land? Maybe live on it in peace but I’m sure you guys still think that’s where he’ll be tracking all the vaccinated people with the chips morons think is in the vaccine

    Twitter has another point than people hating on people they don’t like?

    But of course we gotta pretend “hate speech” only includes speech you personally hate. The common denominator to jerk on the twitter is not whether you are political left or political right, it’s that you’re an entitled a-hole. And specifically wrestling twitter has a very large percentage of entitled a-holes to go around.

    No one will miss him

  8. On January 18, 2019, Foley stated: Yes, I bailed out on my @Instagram account after just two posts. I just don’t have the time or enthusiasm to make it anything special. I’m still trying to wean myself off of Twitter and Facebook.


  9. Joseph says:

    @Alex burns – He’s buying up farmland. Is he putting farmers out of business and acquiring their land, or is he outbidding people who want to start their own farms and now can’t because he’s buying up land?

    @Steve Gerweck – I doubt he’s considering leaving Twitter because he doesn’t have the time. If that was the case, he would have announced it before Elon Musk purchased Twitter.

  10. Disgruntled Jobber says:

    Musk has stated multiple times that he’s against unions and feels that unions give workers too much power.

    You know, stuff like medical coverage, sick days, vacations, livable wages. Pesky little things like those.

    Foley just goes on these dumb sanctimonious rants. You were some overweight guy that had to destroy his body because your ring work was poor, not someone I’d look into for rational political takes
